It's no secret that yours truly is personally excited about the upcoming iPhone game Power Pill from Canadian creators Polytron and Infinite Ammo -- forming the all-powerful Infinitron Polypharma -- and as we previewed last week, Polytron's Phil Fish was set to reveal the first details of the game at this week's PechaKucha Night in Montreal. The night has come and gone, and Power Pill's "viral" debut is now public, thanks to Phil posting all of the presentation's images online -- and here's a video of the presentation.
The Power of Twenty
As we first mentioned on Monday, we here at PechaKucha, in collaboration with Architecture for Humanity, are putting a project together to help with the reconstruction in Haiti. You can read more about the PechaKucha Global Night for Haiti -- "The Power of Twenty" -- here (and keep checking that page for updates), and also watch the presentation that was recorded live last night at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 68, with Mark Dytham, Astrid Klein, and Cameron Sinclair (skyping in from the World Economic Forum in Davos).
PechaKucha for Haiti on PKD
As we enter February, and now less than three weeks away from the "PechaKucha Global Night for Haiti," we're going to concentrate coverage here at PechaKucha Daily on the worldwide event, and all of the things happening in the weeks leading to it. As you'll soon see, there's going to be a lot of activity on the site, with a huge ramp up of presentations going online (we're hoping to get as many as we can uploaded), to be accompanied with donation buttons, with all proceeds going to reconstruction projects in Haiti (through Architecture for Humanity). So stay tuned, and prepare to be amazed by what the PechaKucha community will be producing.
The Power of PechaKucha
We hand over the controls to PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson -- his Vol. 24 event was held just last night -- who talks about the perks of being a PKN organizer. As a PechaKucha organizer you sometimes ask yourself if it's worth all those hours you put in. But then you go on vacation to Central America and find out you have PechaKucha colleagues in every other city. Take this example with Panama City. I went there by myself and only knew about two places in town, the place I was staying at and the offices of TBWA / Panama, the local producers of PechaKucha Night. From left: Jesper Larsson (PechaKucha Night in Göteborg) and Ricardo Fernández (PechaKucha Night in Panama City). Words of wisdom at the TBWA / Panama office. I had a great time hanging out with local PechaKucha organizers Ricardo Fernández and Juan Cruz Soares Gache. As an organizer I highly recommend you use the power of a 385 city strong network -- what company can compete with that? -- and contact the local organizers of PechaKucha when you are out traveling. It's a great way to get local tips and recommendations, and a chance to discuss and share PKN experiences. While still traveling I also found out that I had been listed as an up-and-comer when Gothenburg's biggest daily newspaper listed "The 100 most influential people in town," simple because of the success of PechaKucha here. The power is there. Let's just not forget that it's there because we all put in all those hours.
The Power of the Arts
From today we're going to start sharing a couple of presentations a day -- we've been getting our hands on quite a few of late -- and we start with "The Power of the Arts," with Kathryn Blume talking about the power of the arts in building powerful movements for addressing climate change and communicating a potent, creative vision for a world without oil. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Montpelier, VT Vol. 3.

The Power of Touch
Without human contact we are, in a sense, blind. Touchy HumanCamera is just that, a human with a camera for eyes. He walks the world blindly until a kind soul reaches out to touch him, opening his shuttered eyes! He speaks about his experiences visting many countries and communicate with thousands of people through touch. In "The Power of Touch" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, we see that Touchy gives us an idea of how we ought to try to divide our time between our online and offline lives in order to remain happy and satisfied.
The Power of Yes
“When I say yes, especially in the face of fear, it takes me on this amazing journey.” Technologist Tiffany Lentz strongly believes in the power of saying “Yes.” In “The Power of Yes” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 1, she speaks about her experiences learning and growing in various diverse roles, all the while stretching her personal paradigm. Tiffany encourages us to “speak words of life” over ourselves, and to step out of our comfort zones.

In Community Development and the Power of Small Scale Change, from Markham, Vol. 7, Town Planner, Administrator, and dreamer Joanne Dang shares how much she loves cities and believes that they are living ecosystems. She discusses her journey in many places around the world and the power of small-scale, community-based changes that lead to vibrant cities. Here she poses the question, "what is your dream for your city?"
